Basic Studio Lighting Workshop

Strobist Shooters - Welcome to our Basic Lighting Workshop!

Using off camera flash with the kinds of equipment available today is a fantastic advance in photography.  However, to do so effectively requires mastering the principles of lighting  and having a good mastery of how to use studio strobes  and modeling lights.  These principles are the basis on which to build your skills as be begin to explore the more complex and demanding requirements of using off camera flash/Strobist lighting.

The workshop is a great way to become familiar with the studio lighting equipment and meet other photographers :-).

We will be holding this workshop at the Carriage House Studio,  in the historic DC Logan Circle area.

The skills and knowledge you obtain in this workshop will pay for themselves many times over. Participants will use their cameras with the studio lights so that they have a set of images at the end of the workshop that demonstrate the various lighting arrangements for each kind of photography.

A. Basic lighting set up for studio photography and posing with a model for: - portraiture - fashion - glamour - fine art

B. Camera settings for synchronization

C. Use of umbrellas, soft boxes, snoot, grids, cookies and reflectors.

D. Sources and quality of light

E. Work with equipment in setting up and shooting in the four (4) different lighting arrangements described, using 1, 2 and 3 lights.

F.   Working with a live model  to produce head shots, full-length images, and fine art concepts.

By the end of the workshop, you will be comfortable using studio lights on your own, at the Carriage House Studio or elsewhere.
